    Some early 08's had the older design heads as I recall, but later ones had an improved design. Fear not though because Ford Techs have discovered several ways to easily remove the plugs from even the problem motors. The plug change is no longer the disaster it was when folks first started to try to change them. Check with your local Ford dealer and see what they say. You may be pleasantly surprised.

    If the coils have brown boots the plugs are the new design, black boots are the old ones that break off.
